What made me keep turning the page?

Lissa’s neurotic personality
The chemistry/tension between Lissa and Cash
The ideas of double standards presented throughout the book

Any complaints?

I thought this book trivialized very serious topics.

Recommendation:

Older teens
Fans of Contemporary YA

Final Thoughts…

This book was an enjoyable easy read. The story was fun and light.

I did, however, have some issues with how the idea of sex was so trivialized. There was never mention of any potential consequences throughout the story. I just worry that in the wrong hands, a young girl could get the wrong impression from this book.

On the other hand I liked how the topic of double standards was addressed. It made you think about how guys and girls can be viewed differently for the same type of behavior.

All in all, this is a fun read for a mature reader. It brings up a lot of questions and ideas to think about.
